When the drudgery and habit of daily life gets on top of us, as it does to everyone at some point in time, we generally complain. Some people fall into the rut of complaining endlessly. Almost professional pessimists, the verbal tirades usually continue every time you meet them. That is if you can stand regular socialising with Mr/Mrs/Miss/Ms doom and gloom. I should know, because for many years I was part of the otherwise jovial band of conversational cavaliers known as the London Taxi Trade. For some reason a large slice of negativity has embedded itself into this respected profession. By the way I am not intending to trivialise serious life events which give just reason for sadness and or depression. I am concerned with the subject of 'if you don't like it then do something about it'.
Of course it is not necessarily easy to change your life in a major way. Family matters are very important and we are often seriously prevented from 'moving on'. It is just not on! However many people do take the bull by the horns and just do it. Many make a positive change of career often brought on by redundancy for example. My circumstances opened up a door for a complete change and I decided to emigrate. I always try to be as brief as possible. So from hereon is the story of my decision to move to Bulgaria.
